I Knew You Were Trouble by Taylor Swift has been covered countless times, but there’s just something magical about hearing your favorite radio song being played in the subway.

So Boston violinists Rhett Price and Josh Knowles took to their nearby subway station to perform and record their own arrangement of the pop song. 

No doubt, travelers recognized the tune that is still being played at every grocery store and mall in America

Every year, the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign holds their very popular Engineering Open House day, which is full of fun activities and events. One of the most popular events this year was crushing a concrete cylinder with a giant mechanical press. 

The Bad Astronomer was at this year’s pillar crushing, and caught the entire scene on camera

The crowd was nearly silent as the giant crusher made contact with the 800 lb concrete cylinder. For over a minute, the host read off as the kilopounds of pressure built up until finally, the cylinder gave way at 1,600,000 pounds of pressure

The crowd burst into applause as the host asked, “Am I the only one that jumped?”
